40% of death and disease in Pakistan is preventable but with a majority of it's population without access to healthcare facilities, an extremely high and unnecessary death toll is found. Several ambulance services operate in Karachi, (Pakistan's largest city and the 4th largest in the world), however, the missing link is the presence of trained medical personnel, equipment and lifesaving medicines that is considered essential for lifesaving interventions.
With a fleet of 60 ambulances serving all parts of the city and manned by doctors and trained Paramedics; AMAN AMBULANCE, has redefined en route, in-transit ambulatory care in the city of Karachi. Managed by a central Command and Control Center, with an average response time of 12 mins, the service has achieved more than 955,000 interventions to date. The service ensures delivery to the hospital facilities within the 'Golden Hour' thus considerably reducing the incidence of avoidable deaths.
It was a cold night when 30 year old Mehreen went into labor. There was no time to lose and her husband Farrukh grabbed the phone and dialed 1021. Within moments Aman AMBULANCE arrived and they were on their way to the hospital. The labor progressed at a rapid pace and, under the supervision of Aman's Medics, Mehreen delivered a beautiful baby boy! Mother and child were safely transported to the hospital. Every life saved is a life transformed and this is the long term impact of Aman Foundation.
